How is the snow?? Been watching your IG. Looks epic!
Ohhh those October Snows 😍❄️ So pretty but so slushy and dense! 😅
Driving out to SoCal… that was not what I was expecting let’s just say that! This was between Beaver and Saint George… it was so bad I had to pull over on the side of the highway once, get back going, then ultimately decide to stop at a rest stop for a few hours.. oh hey also – remember how my windshield wipers don’t work?? That was super 🤪 semis throwing slush at me while I leave my window down with a towel in hand so I can re-wipe my windshield over and over… hahaha only VW owners would deal with that shit 😂😂😂 in the morning it was not letting up but I really didn’t want to get seriously snowed in so I went for it when it was light and it was a mistake at first but then worth it when 20 minutes down the road there wasn’t a flake of snow in sight. WHAT?! Crazy crazy Utah weather 🤪😂
On Monday morning I woke up at Rusty’s house to a phone call from Hayley Hart, that Creig Hart – Outlawvdub (on Instagram at least) – and our Jamaican-Canadian long time buddy here around the shop, is in the hospital. 😔 so I drove home, changed Greta’s oil, and was on my way to Cali that night.
Unfortunately Creig slipped and cracked his head open, but upon being treated for that started having strokes in the hospital and they found a major heart infection as well. He was moved from the ICU to the Cardiac Critical Care Unit on Thursday at Scripps in La Jolla. They are taking it day by day, and he is still trying to regain his strength from the strokes before he has surgery for a tissue valve replacement on Tuesday. Unfortuently due to Covid Hayley is the only one who can go see him, and even for her it is a major ordeal to get to him… but she called me so I could come be with the boys so she can spend every minute possible with Creig right now. She’s even been able to sleep there the last couple nights which is great.
Please keep Creig and his family in your thoughts ❤️ He is getting better each day thank goodness and he is so healthy and strong otherwise that I really do believe he’s going to come back from this and be mountain biking and watching the boys play hockey again soon ❤️
Greta was amazing. I drove her the 800 miles to Temecula in a hell run like one would do with a new car, and she didn’t protest until we got to the dreaded traffic. I literally made it to the exit for the Harts house when she called it quits. I let her cool off and then hobbled her to their house… Sarah‘s friend Robert lives in Encinitas and is a mechanic and he offered to help me out. I’ve got her parked at the Harts now, and I’m driving their GIANT sprinter around for the boys; so I’m good for now, but will eventually want Greta fixed, of course.Audrey JonesModeratorOctober 17, 2021 at 7:21 amPost count: 669
I heard Greta took a wrong turn and almost went to eastern Colorado 😘😘
hard to believe this was only a week ago that I was driving aimlessly though northern New Mexico… East..? west? who knows where I was but it was beautiful!! 😍😅😂 I managed to make a 4 hour drive 7.5 hours last Sunday 🙈 but made it to Rusty’s house!! 🥳
Buses and balloons looked fun. Maybe 70 buses ? I made a wrong turn in northern Idaho a few years back and almost landed in Canada….Ha
hahaha oh man… sometimes you’re just having fun driving your bus enjoying the views – Too much fun to even look at a map, ya know? 😅
Busses and Balloons was a great time!!! I drove all the way to Albuquerque to see some balloons and saw ONE float up for a moment before coming right back down due to wind… oh well! Had an amazing time with all the VW people, new and old 👏🏻 I hear 103 buses showed up to the event- what an awesome turn out!! Sarah let me crash her camp last minute and we had a cute little set up going ☺️Couldn’t get people into the Pumpkin Carving Contest, so instead I randomly passed them out around camp😁 check out those cool shelves hanging from the rain gutters?? SO COOL! Maybe we can convince Sarah to post a pic of the one she was gifted last weekend on River 😍
Before leaving town, Sarah, Big Bus Mike, his friend William, and I stopped at a museum/display called Tinkertown 😁 It was a super eclectic art and collections showcase outside Albuquerque! Fun and seriously unique! Lots of random things to look at and appreciate and lots of good signs too 😁
Total of right around 800 miles for that trip and Greta CRUSHED it 😎👏🏻 As usual!!!! I love my busAudrey JonesModeratorOctober 8, 2021 at 12:56 amPost count: 669
Greta and I are headed to Buses and Balloons!!Stopped at Rusty and Holly’s House for the night and met Karen for the first time! They totally tricked me when they got home and I definetly thought Karen was Holly 😂 thanks for the cool unique brown Coleman lantern, Rusty! 😎Audrey JonesModeratorOctober 7, 2021 at 8:47 amPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorOctober 7, 2021 at 6:21 amPost count: 669
We had 14 VWs and 25 People arrive at KCW Tuesday evening for the VW Valley Rally cruise!!!! Took up a whole block of Kimball lining up to go!!
Thank you to everyone who came!!! You guys showing up is what makes it GREAT!!! Thank you Baird for bringing the idea up and getting the ball rolling!! It seemed like everyone had a great time, and probably had at least one laugh – whether it was laughing at me riding on the roof of the pamper or JJ and I getting a ticket for doing that 😂😂
The damn ranger came up from ahead of us on a hairpin turn so I didn’t even get to lay down and hide behind the spare tire like I’d planned 😂
you know what… he made it a night none of us will ever forget now!! And yes officer… it was worth it for the video 😅 I mean – we were going like 15mph and the roads were paved!! He should see what we do on the Ottinger tour and Shasta 😜
Roosters was amazing- reserving the patio for us was perfect!! And Amanda our amazing server did AMAZING dealing with 21 people on separate checks haha I hope she made out well! Then she’ll want to do it again for us guys! 😁
So speaking of doing this again… how often could I get you guys out for a cruise?! 😏 that was tons of fun!!Audrey JonesModeratorOctober 4, 2021 at 7:11 pmPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorOctober 4, 2021 at 10:58 amPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 11:45 amPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 11:10 amPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 8:47 amPost count: 669
Saturday night was the big party!!! 😏😎I had already had some tea with Creig… and a few drinks at bingo… 😂 when Dave whisked me away in the shop to a random door… weird…. When I walked through the door there were beautiful women handing me alcoholic cupcakes and a saxophonist and leather couches and fireplaces and an old-fashioned self-serve bar and hand rolled cigars and twinkle lights setting a WHOLE VIBE 😍 the “ski-easy” was seriously insanely cool!!! Especially since no one knew it was happening until you walked through the door – Even Mitch and Cora didn’t see it once until walking through the door that night just like us 👏🏻 It was hard to take pictures, and beat to just take it all in, but here a peak 👌🏻
And this one is for the Journey Bus ✌🏻best dance partner 💃🏻👏🏻Sarah and Corporate in the speak easy 😎William might have has a few drinks too 😂 he called me over to get my phone out for a video to go get JJ – I guess JJ has a signature look now guys 🙈
Sunday Morning Team Amigos cooked up an awesome pancake breakfast, complete with breakfast themed music 👌🏻 Great way to end an awesome weekend!!
couldn’t leave without the signature picture! 🙌🏻 High Sierra or Bust!!! Mitch’s Bitches!!! Until next year 🤙🏼Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 8:28 amPost count: 669
Mitch lives on 55 acres – PERFECT for a Campout – he even has little camp spots sorta down the way 👏🏻 Lots of people were there!! Lots of Shasta friends 😎 I’d guess maybe 30 buses?
Here’s another of Creig’s (type2empire) buses at Mitch’s 😎BINGO!!! Put on by Cora and Sarah was SO FUN! 😁 Great job ladies!! Every time a letter ‘O’ comes up you have to drink 😂👌🏻 And you can win cool prizes! Sandra built a whole bus right there during bingo 😉Dave Manning was there for a concert which was super cool!! Then we stayed the night to party with us all too 😎👏🏻The food truck was DELISH! They also had artichokes which – after Sandra taught corporate how to eat them 😂 – was really good!! 😅we had some tea with Creig using those fancy aluminum cups in the Mango 😏We had the best campsite of all!! Right in the middle of everything 👏🏻Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 8:16 amPost count: 669
What an AWESOME weekend at the Case Compoud!! 👏🏻👏🏻 Thanks for having us, Mitch and Cora, and for throwing one Epic Bash!!! If you like VWs and you like to party, this Campout is for you 😎🥳💃🏻🤙🏼
We took hwy 50 most of the way out there and back and of course stopped at Baker and Spencer both ways! On the way there there was hardly anyone at either 😍
It was great taking our time getting out there – only 200-300 miles a day! Got to Mitch’s on Friday right at 2 😉
First things first – Corporate had to try the bump-n-jump obstacle course! 👏🏻
a peak inside the Case Concepts Shop 😎I think we may have started something…. 😂😂 MITCH‘S BITCHES!!!Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 8:05 amPost count: 669Audrey JonesModeratorSeptember 29, 2021 at 8:02 amPost count: 669
